Welcome to the February 2018 Theme
A GORGEOUS African square from Paola Ferrari. Thanks Paola....LOVE the cololurs. :))
Oooh, such pretty bright colors, Paola. Well done! xo
So striking. Loving this square.
A Dwarf Mongoose. You're probably thinking it looks like a rat, but the design was created from a dwarf mongoose pic, I promise.....lol. The square is a really pretty light apple green...oh well.....
Here's a pic and a little info about them, courtesy of Wikipedia.
Never seen one before. Bev, yours matches the description in wikipedia: a large pointed head, small ears, a long tail, short limbs. It is PERFECT!! Cute, I might add. Thanks , Bev for such a fine work. Well done.
Bev, your little mongoose is soooo cute. A tiny friend for a little one :) ... xo
Made me think of a squirrel actually. I'm going to read that link. Such smooth even work Bev shows me what even tension means.
He's terrific, Lesley. You and I seem to be on the same wavelength as I'm currently working on some applique squares.
Aww Lesley....he is indeed a friendly lion......I LOVE his cute ears and mane.....and his face is adorable. :))
Thank you for sharing the pic from your holidays....I thought they were only to be found 'in the willd', far away from humans....lol.
Yes, they are fun, aren't they, Patricia - I have lots more lined up for some of the year's themes, although the downside for me is making the plain squares to sew them onto - I have a low boredom threshold :)) !
Bev, this was in a nature reserve (our favourite 'holiday resort'), where the 'wild' animals are less nervous of humans - we particularly enjoy the 'wild' tortoises!
